Texans' Duane Brown: Contract dispute lingers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown is not expected to report for the start of training camp due to his unhappiness with his contract, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Brown, Houston's 31-year-old left tackle, skipped the entire offseason, feeling his contract has become outdated over time as new tackle deals have surpassed Brown's deal. The Texans are holding fast to their policy of not negotiating deals with two years left on them, and it's unclear if a compromise can be reached. At this point, Brown is not expected to miss regular-season games because of the dispute.

Texans' D'Onta Foreman: Drug tests come back negative
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foreman, who was charged with marijuana possession as part of his arrest last weekend, tested negative for illegal substances Friday, John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Foreman was arrested in Austin last Sunday on charges of unlawful gun possession and possession of marijuana, but he volunteered to take a urinalysis test in order to prove his innocence on the latter allegation. While the results came back negative, Foreman probably isn't in the clear just yet. However, both the league office and the Texans will likely wait for the legal process to unfold before issuing any sort of punishment, should they choose to do so.

Texans' D'Onta Foreman: Taken into custody Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foreman was taken into custody by the University of Texas police department on Sunday and charged with marijuana possession and unlawful carrying of a weapon, Brian Davis of the American-Statesman reports.

With the legal process just beginning, we won't speculate on a possible suspension, but there's a chance the Texans take action once all is said and done. A third-round pick out of Texas, Foreman is expected to compete for the No. 2 running back role behind starter Lamar Miller, although it remains to be seen how Sunday's events will affect his standing.

Texans' D.J. Reader: Primed for starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Texans have "no concerns" that Reader will be able to replace Vince Wilfork at nose tackle, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The Texans' 2016 fifth-round pick -- who was viewed as more of a rotational lineman coming out of Clemso -- started seven games in his rookie season and proved sufficiently capable of occupying double teams and clogging up the trenches at the professional level. While he finished the year with only 22 tackles and one sack across 16 appearances, Reader seems to be a lock to improve upon his 40-percent snap count from a season ago and, in turn, should have more of an opportunity to rack up the counting stats in his sophomore campaign.
